Cozy Comfort Year Round

Plush fabric, soothing textures and utilizing your favourite colours for inspiration can go a long way. Increase your relaxation quotient by creating a custom window seat in your home. Simple construction can be implemented to provide you a functional and fabulous space. Add some fleece throws, matching pillows and elegant lighting such as a chandelier to help you enjoy this alcove during the darker times of year. Dimmer switches are a fun option here too.

Extra Seating for Entertaining

Bay windows are a natural choice for inspiring window seats. However, any window can benefit from a simple bench addition. Perhaps your master bathroom has the perfect view. Maybe your dining room could use some extra seating. Entertain yourself and your guests by choosing the window that will be best suited for this endeavour. Some clients simply choose their best view; others decide based upon the busiest location in their home or office. Options abound and The Well Dressed Window in Kelowna can help you implement the right window coverings to enhance your aesthetic and peace of mind.

Studying, Reading & Working In Your New Window Seat

The right amount of ambient light is vital for your eye health and well-being. Michelle from The Well Dressed Window has superior options for putting you back in control of your privacy and light. Adjustable vanes within certain Hunter Douglas Blinds enable you to minimize or maximize your natural light source. This is ideal with our bright Okanagan summers and cloudy, grey Kelowna winters. Increasing your light during the cooler, darker months can help keep everyone happier and healthier in your home. Conversely, minimizing your UV exposure in the summer helps to keep your home much cooler. Enjoy the benefits of energy efficiency year round by upgrading your window coverings.

Sensational Storage Solutions

Imagine having some discreet storage incorporated into your new window seat! This could be the perfect addition for extra blankets, books, seasonal clothing or even pet food! The possibilities are as vast as the window coverings available from The Well Dressed Window. Michelle delivers much more than window covering options to your home or office with her design background. Love every inch of your space and enjoy your view in an entirely new way.
